This is the way forward for putting an end to the insanity which is ads on mobile browsers.

+Sebastian Schuberth I think the process is based on users reporting and engaging in the ABP whitelisting forums (which is sort of still their weakest point, as the community is not active enough). So if you do see whitelisted, intrusive ads, you have to report them to get them off the whitelist again.

SourceForge is now offering mirroring/sync of your sources on GitHub. Far too late to the game, trying to salvage some pieces..

BitBucket is already an alternative to GitHub isn't it? And Gerrit as well is growing ... although is missing lots of stuff that GitHub provides (Wikis, Issues, News ...) but can link to them via plugins. You could have Gerrit + BugZilla and a MD-based rendered Wiki via Gitiles and you can easily have a project up-and-running with 100% OpenSource tools :-)

So +Roberto Tyley just stepped up to make a service that will ship a GitHub pull-request as patches to the Git mailing list. This is cool in so many ways, and I like to think I was part of its conception at the #gitmerge  party :)

Atlassian Git Tutorial

Summary: Not the best boarding house for people with small children, or in general. We (a couple w/ baby) stayed here for a week as it's quite close to our family in Berlin. There are however several "pensions" on the same street, and in retrospect we should rather have tried another one. We paid 50 euros a night, 50 of which had to be transferred up front as a deposit. Quality: The first thing that struck us upon entering the yard of the house is that it is very chaotic and messy. Inside the room, we found filthy shelves, a microwave that hadn't been cleaned in ages, and balls of dust under the beds. The room was serviced every day, but the floors were not cleaned, and we reckon all they did was to take out the trash. The shower drain was nearly fully clogged upon arrival. Facilities: The room was small, about the size of a hotel room. There were twin beds that could not be connected properly, and this was a hassle for us as we had a 9-month old baby sleeping between us. Even though the owners informed us in advance that there wouldn't be a problem bringing our baby there, they offered no baby bed or baby chair. Furthermore, the entrance to the apartment was behind some steep steps in the yard, making it near impossible for a single parent to traverse it with a pram. There was a huge TV-set in the room, and even though we didn't use it much, it was somewhat ironic to see only a handful of channels available. The room had a tiny kitchen with an adequate fridge, coffeemaker, micro-wave oven and a kettle, but no stove or oven. The shower had some inconveniantly placed hot-water pipes that I managed to burn my arm on every time I took a a shower. There's no Internet available. Service: We didn't interact much with the owners apart from the day where we managed to lock ourselves out of the apartment. When the owner realized we had left the keys in the lock on the inside, we had to pay 150 euros for getting a locksmith to open it. Overall it was a pretty cheap deal, but at this price level I had expected properly cleaned rooms, as well as some upfront honesty on the keylocks and baby issues.
